7 Luxury Home Gym Equipment to Get Your Fitness Fix in
An updated advisory, released on May 7, indicated that private gyms and fitness studios are now allowed to conduct low-intensity physical activities. However, these low-risk activities have to be conducted without the use of equipment, and workouts that involve any equipment of all kinds are not permitted.
As we await the reopening of fitness facilities islandwide, working out at home is the safest option for now. If you’re not looking to invest in a massive piece of gym equipment that takes up a colossal amount of space, turn to these compact luxury workout equipment instead. Marrying design and athleticism, these portable pieces can deliver an equally intense sweat session.
